looks like a glare from a glass shard to me.
If you watch closely at the very beginning of the WTC7 collapse video, you can see an entire vertical row of windows being blown out at the exact same time...(at the corner closest to the camera)....and you can see smoke or dust coming out of that row of windows just a second after they were blown, too. I'm not a demolitions expert, by any means, but to me, that is just one more piece of evidence that the collapse was due to an inner explosion/demolition job, and not from fire/debris collapsing down on it, as the official government story goes.

sorry to be a party pooper. but that's not a demolition of the tower.
And showing that to a friend of mine that has an engineering business he's also pretty shure it's not a demolition.
You have to understand the way the building is built to see why this happened. Normally a building would have the steel girders encased in concrete. like a skeleton. inside the building. the trade center towers had their steel girders on the outside. like the exoskeleton of a bug.
Now I agree here with everyone that it's pretty inconcievable that a building like the world trade centers would be taken down by a plane like it did. however due to the way the buildings were built that's exactly what happened.
you can see that the floors hung off of the outside of the building and connected to the inner core. if you watch the first few seconds of the video you can clearly see the exoskeleton of the building falling away at the top. like a flower opening up. the middle part of the building stood as long as it could but eventually caved in and fell.
Sorry guys but after watching that vid I can't say that it was a demolition. show me even more that it was support failure of the outer walls.

Oxygen is very flammable and explosive when under pressure.
That is another LOGICAL source of the "explosions".
But to claim the explosions were the direct result of demo charges is ignorant and just plain stupid when considering all the stuff buried/crushed/burning in the debris pile.
The whole point of a controlled demo is to have everything go at once. Not have random detonations 20-30 minutes or even hours earlier which would only serve to destabilize the building and possibly have it collapse when you are least suspecting it uncontrolled and killing more people.
Here is smaller oxygen tank getting shot by a rifle:
